About a couple of months ago, the video game publisher and developer Ubisoft reiterated the existence of Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ PvP mode known as Ghost War, announcing that it would be available as a free download sometime this fall. Today, the company has decided to unveil the release date for the forthcoming game mode as October 10, 2017, which is about two weeks away from now before fans can hop into some 4v4 action.
As seen in the trailer below for Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ Ghost War mode, fans are given the opportunity to learn more about three different classes that will be playable in the PvP mode, and they are being called Assassin, Diversionist and Sentinel. As expressed by their namesakes, the Assassin is a stealth-driven soldier who operates well in close-quarters, the Diversionist works best at a distance from enemies while using technological diversions to lay traps, and the Sentinel is a hunter who maintains an overview of the battlefield with a trusty sniper rifle.
For the uninitiated, Ghost Recon: Wildlands‘ Ghost War mode will have matches that play out as best-of-three, with each having 10-minute rounds. Furthermore, there are going to be eight maps and 12 classes in all at launch, and Ubisoft has previously explained that it will have “regular updates and new content” after the release of the PvP mode. This ought to include more classes, maps, and modes, with objective-style game types potentially being one possibility.
Taking all of this into account, it has been nearly seven months since Ubisoft initially revealed that a PvP mode would be coming to Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and that the DLC will be free. So, with the publisher and developer having now divulged Ghost War’s release date after such a long wait, fans still playing the title will surely rejoice for the new content, and its impending inclusion could even bring lapsed players back into the fold as well.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
